Course Objectives and Outcomes

Course Objectives

  • This course aims to introduce students to the concept of data structures, and demonstrate how the use of appropriate data structures will improve the efficiency of algorithms.
  • Students will implement various simple data structures and apply them to solve real world scenarios.
  • Along the way, students will learn to think about problems recursively and use modular programming.

Course Outcomes

After completing this course, the student should be able to
CO1: Apply modular design to write simple, correct and recursive programs.
CO2: Apply elementary mathematical concepts to prove the correctness and analyze the complexity of algorithms.
CO3: Design and implement simple augmented data structures to model various real world scenarios.
CO4: Use appropriate data structures to write efficient algorithms.
